A Treatment Process Focused on Providing Individualized Therapy

Each patient is unique to us and so, too, are their physical therapy needs. Our team of board-certified physicians, experienced physical therapists and certified sports medicine professionals works diligently to provide care for inpatients and outpatients of any age. Each patient receives a comprehensive pre-treatment evaluation as well as a customized treatment program focusing on his or her individual needs and goals to assure the best possible outcomes.

Physical Therapy For a Wide Range of Conditions

Our goal is to minimize the effects of illness or injury and to help patients achieve the maximum level of function possible. Our physical therapists treat a wide range of conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Scoliosis
  • Back Pain

Treatments Designed for Successful Outcomes

Depending upon each patient's individual needs, Southwest General's physical therapists use a variety of treatment techniques, including:

  • Activities to ease pain and encourage movement
  • Strength training
